Italy's Andrea Ranocchia confused by double toilet situation upon arriving in Brazil

Italy arrived in Brazil on Friday and when they did, defender Andrea Ranocchia discovered something with which fans of the Winter Olympics might already be familiar. Ranocchia, who is not a part of Italy's 23-man squad for the World Cup but traveled with the team in case of injury, tweeted a picture of two toilets side by side, presumably found in the team's Rio de Janeiro hotel.

His caption: "But why??? To never feel alone?"

The multi-toilet phenomenon was well documented on social media at the Winter Olympics in Sochi a few months ago and apparently Brazil felt it looked like a good idea, so they've gone and done it too. I'm not sure if this improves or reduces the chances of Mario Balotelli and friends setting fire to a bathroom with fireworks. Probably improves.
